Welcome to the Guild of American Papercutters

Members of the Guild endeavor to learn, educate and promote original papercutting as an art form to, and among, artists, historians, supporters of the art, collectors, and the general public.  The Guild encourages knowledge of traditions and acceptance of exploration through its publications, traveling exhibits, a biennial papercutting conference called "Collection", and member workshops and demonstrations.
